Etching. 140 x 90mm (5½ z 9½").
Portrait of William Camden (1550-1623) after Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger. He is best known for description of Britain, the 'Britannia' (1586), which was first illustrated with county maps in 1607. This portrait appears to come from an octavo atlas, as the text under the portrait is headed 'Explanation of the Charcaters in the Maps'.
